Not sure what to say?

So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. We were classmates in Powell Junior High in DC. I remember him as the tall good looking fellow in our class. Prayers to you all. What a lovely photo tribute of your parents.

Bill was a great friend to all he met. I have been blessed to have known such a giving, caring, hard working, and knowledgeable man. He will be missed by all who learned about and received plants from him. I am sure he will make heaven a place of beauty with gardens of herbs, trees, and vegetables, while our gardens suffer without his advice and cuttings. Gail Fleagle (Greensboro, NC)

Bill was a great neighbor and a good friend who gave me plants. took me fishing down at the bottom of the hill and was a fellow Master Gardener.
I'll miss him and Kaye.

Heaven has a new Angel and the choir has a new voice! May God bless Bill Barnard in Heaven and all his family here on earth.

My prayers go out to your family Chris, and you. These times are difficult and there is no limit to how long you grief. Parents are special and taught us great morals. That is what you bring out. Remember the good times you had. Laugh and cry as you speak about him. Memories never fade away. God rest his sole as he has taken another Angel to watch over you.

Bill was a treasure. I met him through the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer program more than 10 years ago, and he was a delight in every way. His generosity of spirit, his rich sense of humor, and his green thumb will leave a legacy few people can possibly hope to match. I send love and support to the entire family at this sad time. He left an indelible imprint on my life, and I'll never forget the pleasure of knowing him.

Our condolences to the entire family. As young cousins we shared some great times in D.C. A fine gentleman who was very proud of his family.

Psalms 104:33 "I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being". I really liked your Dad. I loved hearing him sing and singing with him. His voice and the fact that he knows the lyrics will be a welcomed addition to heavens choir.

I was lucky enough to be a friend of Bill
